The History of Standard Oil: Volume 2


Publication date 2012-01-19
LibriVox recording of THE HISTORY OF STANDARD OIL: VOLUME 2, by IDA M. TARBELL. Read by Tom Weiss.

The History of the Standard Oil Company is a book written by journalist Ida Tarbell in 1904. It was an exposé of the Standard Oil Company, run at that time by oil tycoon John D. Rockefeller, the richest figure in America's history. Originally serialized in 19 parts in McClure's magazine, the book was a seminal example of muckraking, and inspired many other journalists to write about trusts, large businesses that (in the absence of strong antitrust law in the 19th century) attempted to gain monopolies in various industries. The History of the Standard Oil Company was credited with hastening the breakup of Standard Oil, which came about in 1911. ( Summary by Wikipedia )

Subject: Part 2 is even more interesting
Continuation of the excellent Volume 1. Particularly inspiring are the people of the Pure Oil Company and their determination to stave off the relentless and ruthless Standard. The audio book is long, but very well read. I listen to the recording at a slightly faster pace.
